Duty's List

So many things to do today!
Duty comes bearing her long list.
I sToMp my feet and clench my fists . . .
then, I pencil you in for 8.

An Envelope Quatrain on Duty

Pencil me in as a fan of your great sense of satire and artfulness of the pithy poem!

Kerry O'Connor said...

Haha! Trust you to turn a to do list into poetry, MZ.

Thanks for participating today, despite the other things that press upon you.

Have a good Sunday.

Stomping works wonders with lists. And without that one appointment at 8, you might never make it through the rest, I say. I wish I could have said mine this concisely.(It would have taken several hours off my list. ;_) )

Wondrous piece of poetry and visual art, all in one. Perfect.

Penciled lists are the best. Always room for change at the last moment.

In my experience Duty doesn't react well to stomping. She just adds another item to the list.
